Mini-ITX has posted up details (the posting of which is newsworthy in itself, as the site seemed to be dead for so long) of an awesome looking Futurama themed case. A crafty Norwegian modder has fabricated his own bending unit to house his mini-ITX rig:
Now Bender is really beginning to take shape. The teeth were made from a plastic visor used for helmets. This was then painted and the teeth were painted on. After that a hole was cut out for the slot load DVD-rom which is mounted inside the head. the WLAN antenna is also mounted on top of the head and the doors have been cut out .
Unfortunately the hinges on the doors were mounted on the wrong side, so the door opens to the opposite side compared to the original, but that's just a minor issue - this version of Bender is left-handed... Then we had to figure out how to attach the motherboard. After a lot of brain-wracking I figured out that all cables should exit through Benders butt. So that's why this solution was chosen.
